"Our 146th birthday on National Ice Cream Day is the perfect time to celebrate Graeter's and the fans who have helped to make us such a mainstay in so many homes nationwide," shares Chip Graeter, fourth-generation owner of Graeter's Ice Cream. "We take an incredible amount of pride in creating the ideal ice cream experience, which we've been perfecting since Graeter's first small batch of ice cream was churned in 1870."
Graeter's Ice Cream produces craft ice cream using the small batch, artisanal, French Pot process, dating back over a century.
